Stu has always enjoyed playing live and never created a formal studio recording for sale.

HOWEVER, a CD is finally in the works. Tracks on this EPK are demo and home recordings.

Recently, four of Stu's songs were accepted and put into rotation on Chester County Internet Radio.

Set List

Concert repertoire includes Stu's songs, plus surprises. That's the best way to put it. He has a way of breaking into songs that you haven't thought about in years, songs that bring a flood of memories with them.
